Music Director Riccardo Muti leads Giuseppe Verdi’s powerful ballet music from Macbeth in honor of the opera composer’s bicentennial and rounds the concert off with the sunniest of Brahms’s symphonies, which opens with horns rising like the dawn over brooding lower strings. The splendid melodies of Johann Strauss, Jr.’s overture to Indigo and the Forty Thieves are filled with heroic swagger.
